Bluhduh Nav V coordinates configuration

The Nav V has these coordinates configuation choices: ddd.ddddd, ddd mm. mmm, and ddd mm ss.s. I want to enter the coordinate N29.7245 W100.4182. I think I should use the ddd.ddddd choice, but the extra digit in the Nav V has me confused. I only need to enter 4 digits after the decimal and I can't figure out what to put in the last digits place. I tried putting a 0, but the location was off. If it helps, the coordinate I'm trying to enter is from a Butler map. Anyone know what I'm not doing right?

Don't enter anything else but 0, just what you have. If the location is off, that's a Butler issue for not giving you a more accurate coordinate. But, that is a small amount of deviation. When I enter those coordinates into my NAV5, the point is on route 674.

Well, that is the correct road. Close enough I guess. I'm pretty sure I remember being able to input the Butler coordinates into my Zumo 550 as they were printed. I don't have the Zumo here with me, so don't hold me to it.

Close enough? N29.7245 = N29.72450

And all Garmin devices use the hddd.ddddd Lat/Lon format.

Thanks Dan. I just read your review of the Nav V over at Globe Riders. Nice write-up. I learned a few things.
